Reasons For

Benq GL2450 Edge10 ES240d Slim
6 Reasons For
A Little Bigger Display Diagonal
The Benq GL2450 has a display diagonal of 24", but the Edge10 ES240d Slim is only a 23.6" PC monitor (0.4" smaller).

The display diagonal is a measure of the size of the monitor. It is measured from one corner of the screen to the diagonally opposite corner of the screen.

A bigger display diagonal means that the screen will be larger and better for displaying lots of content or for seeing the detail in photos and videos.

Read more Read less | Edit
Faster Response Time
The Benq GL2450 is a 2ms response time PC monitor. That's 3ms faster than the Edge10 ES240d Slim (5ms).

The response time on a PC monitor is a measure of how quickly the monitor reacts to image data sent by the computer's graphics card. Fast response times are particularly important for gamers, who should ideally look for a response time of 8 milliseconds or less.

A faster (shorter) response time is better because fast moving graphics will appear smoother and the gaming experience will feel more responsive.

Read more Read less | Edit
HDCP
The Benq GL2450 has an HDCP, but the Edge10 ES240d Slim does not have an HDCP.

HDCP stands for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection - it is a protocol used by some encrypted DVD players to securely transfer information with no chance of interception.

A monitor with HDCP support will be able to read media from encrypted DVD players and other peripherals.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Speaker(s)
The Benq GL2450 has a built-in speaker(s), but the Edge10 ES240d Slim does not have a built-in speaker(s).

Built in speakers allow you to output sound through the monitor without any need for external speakers.

With built in speakers you can use the monitor like a TV for watch videos to listening to music.
